Custom Printing: Printing on Glass with Ceramic Inks

Sunday, June 19th, 2022

Photo purchased from …

Printing on glass is a challenge. After all, the substrate is completely non-porous. In contrast, most commercial printing paper (with the exception of such synthetic stocks as Yupo) is porous. Printing ink seeps in and attaches to the paper fibers, and the vehicle (liquid part of the ink) is absorbed into both the paper and the atmosphere during the drying process.

I was having a discussion recently with my fiancee about a commercial printing job I’ve been designing. She suggested that I use fugitive glue to attach the relatively few pages to a hard cover.

Business Card Printing: The Power of Business Cards

Monday, June 6th, 2022

Photo purchased from …

I recently read a description of an exchange of business cards that reminded me of a Japanese tea ceremony I experienced in California. Each executive handed the other his business card. Then both looked carefully at what they had received, as if to commit all the details to memory. Then each filed the card away safely (almost ritualistically) in their wallet.
